My Summer Accessories Wish List*

As you all know, I've just got back from my holiday (and very sneakily booked to go back in September, oops!), but that doesn't mean that I can't still lust after the latest summer accessories to hit the high street. There will still hopefully be a few sunny days here and there, and when they happen, I intend to make the most of them!
There are so many vibrant patterns, colourful prints and new trends, so without further ado, here are just four of them that are at the top of my wish list.

Coral, coral, everywhere
Coral is an amazing colour for summer. It helps to turn a plain outfit into a summer classic, or give a bit of dimension to colour-block attire. In summer, I like to tone up the pastels, so if you're a fan of peaches, mint greens and blush pinks, think about adding a statement coral necklace to the mix.

If you'd prefer to tie in coral as a brighter highlight in an otherwise all-white outfit, look out for coral sandals, light shawls or beach bags. My top tip here is to pair it with a dash of turquoise too, for a real summer twist.

Add a touch of charm…bracelets
I have always loved charm bracelets, but recently they've become hugely popular. They're right on trend, and with the right colouring, they can make the perfect summer accessory. For example, if you take a look at the latest collections of ChloBo charm bracelets, you can get pearl pieces that will tie in to any beach theme, or a gorgeous rose gold colour for a touch of sparkle in the evening.

They aren't just eye-catching though, they can be made to suit your personality based on the charms you pick. Do you want a little spiritual protection? Or something to help bring you luck? I guarantee there's a charm for you.

Statement bags, not just for the beach
No matter what your plans are this summer, you can't beat an over-sized shopper for the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. If you're heading out for the day shopping, a large block-colour tote will be just the thing to make you stand out in your simple floral summer dress.

If you're loving the festival season instead though, why not opt for a tropical-patterned bag that can be perfectly paired with a tribal maxi, headdress and messy fishtail plait for that hippie vibe.

Make that a large, please
Speaking of over-sized bags, that's not the only thing that suits the larger look. For the past few years, a pair of over-sized, 50s style sunglasses have been the staple of the sun-seeking fashionista. Then grab an Audrey Hepburn style sun hat and slip on your over-sized tee to hit the beach. Plus, the over-sized look is way more comfortable, so you can relax as well as staying stylish.

I hope you enjoyed this run down of my top summer picks. What's on your wish list this summer?
